Boeing's 747 LCF-Then New 747 Double Decker?

Fri Feb 25, 2005 5:17 pm

I was wondering, when you look at the drawings of the Boeing's 747 Large Cargo Freighter , it seems to me like a 'little' effort to extend the cargo area, mold it into the nose section and create an A380 rival.

I know I am oversymplifying this .. but it is just a thought..

Anyone ?

It would be really really unlikely for Boeing to offer this to anyone, at all. They're using them for 787 parts delivery and so that's what it would be used for, can't imagine how much less efficient will the plane be compared to the 747-400F, but it certainly wont be as efficient.
Now you're really flying

Not only is the main cargo area not pressurized but the operating economics would not be compelling vis a vis the A380.
That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

Interesting... is the cargo area on the A300B4-600ST (Beluga) pressurised?
